Weekend Spotlight: Family Adventures – Shell Sweet Shell

Discover seashells down by the seashore.

The shoreline of the Nissequogue River is home to fascinating creatures that call a shell their home. From crabs and turtles to muscles and snails, the river is teeming with these extraordinary animals.

This Saturday naturalists with the New York State Park’s Long Island Regional Environmental Education Office will explore, through the use of games and hands-on activities, the world of these seashell creatures.

This family oriented program is ideal for children ages five and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The fee for children ages three to 17 is $3 and for adults $4. Children under three are free. Without an Empire Passport, parking is $8.

Registration is required and can be done up to and including Saturday morning by calling the Environmental Education Office at (631) 581-1072.

Explorers should bring sunscreen, a towel and shoes that are appropriate for water and mud.

Shell Sweet Shell is an opportunity for families to discover the fascinating world of seashell animals that call the river their home.
